    Cost of getting rotors cut?

    I was wondering how much it cost to get 4 rotors cut. I would call a place but it is sunday and no one is open. Ballpark price would be fine.

    Thanks,
    Anhalt

    Seriously, for the cost of having them cut and the fact that they will simply warp again sooner, it is better to simply purchase new ones, at least for the front. However, if they are simply gouged then turning them may be an option.

    I only want .030 to .050 cut off of them. I powder coated them and only need the paint cut off the area where the pad contacts. I figured cutting them would give me a cleaner line than using tape. So do you have any idea on how much it costs or not?

    Thanks,

    Thats about right. At my shop we charge $10 per rotor for cars and $15 for trucks.
    Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, if it wasn't for fords our tools would rust
